Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testified before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Wednesday, but just moments before she was to give her testimony the Obamacare website Healthcare.gov crashed. The irony is that just following the website’s crash, Sebelius told the committee, “The website never crashed. It is functional, but at a very slow speed and very low reliability.”
Several states verified that the site was down, including North Carolina, Virginia, Utah, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, New York, Maryland, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, and New Hampshire.
The site was down for at least half an hour while Sebelius was speaking. Here’s what visitors to the site saw:

Kathleen Sebelius told the committee that is they were looking for someone to blame for the debacle of the Obamacare website, they could deal with her, as she claimed full responsibility. I pointed out yesterday that doesn’t mean much, since she hasn’t even been held accountable for violating federal law.
Nevertheless, she made the claim, but the real problem in all of this is Barack Obama, the man Sebelius fell on her sword for. Obama promised that everyone could keep their doctor if they wanted to. He promised that they could keep their insurance plan if they wanted to. Guess what? He lied. I know you’re surprised, right?
In that vein, Congressman Issa also tweeted out this little reminder of Obama’s lies to the American people. Let’s make sure to annoy our liberal friends by getting this video out to all of them.
